Equipped with automobile for

irom email ko to .iviumaui rails, a
party of engineers and surveyors, car
rying field liutrumonts and camping
outfits were litis tied away on a special
train from Portland last night over
tiie 0. It. iV y. by General Managers
O'Brien. Their orders are to cross the
state from north to south, with the
supposed purpose of spying out the

against the Oregon Trunk Line, the
Independent railroad that announces
its intention to build up tho Den
chutes River from its nloiith to Mad
ras and on to Lakevlew, sayo Sunday's

Officials of the Hurriman interests
are reticent as to tho purposes of the
expedition, which was kept secret.
But the oiiject of the trip seems to he
to run counter . to the Oregon Trunk,
tho only railroad, that now threatens
to enter tiio Harrimap preserves, as
Central Oregon has come to he known
The Barrimun people contested the
right or the Oregon Trunk to tiulid a
railroad up the peschutes. canyon
from the mouth of that river 100
miles to tho nig level plain of Central
Oregon, panger threatened the Har-
rlman interests when the Oregon
Trunk entered the Deschutes canyon
and the legal department was put In
motion to head off the threatened in

Trunk is now possessed of rights as
far up tho Deschutes, as the moutli of

state, plans for which arc under way,
the Hnrriman people apparently feel
Ituccesgary to stay tho procession as
soon as possible. ThiB is doubtless the
object of tho expedition just sent into
the interior,
From Deschutes: the party will
travel by atitomob'lle to Madras and
Bend, and engineers will go over the
Upper Deschutes Valley, seeking the
most practical route for ii railroad and
pointing out the only feasible lino for
tiio purpose. Ti'at these stragetlc
points will bo secured by thp Tlarri
man, 'interests and that these engineers
will bo busy In tho Interior for some
time is taken for granted.
Although Uarriman interests cannot
see their way clear to spend money in
building roads Into Central Oregon at
present, aH says Mr. Uarriman him
self, in view of the condition of the
money market, the Oregon managers
appear to have carte blanche when it
comes to blocking other projects into
Hint lerrttpry. This has heen demon
strated any number of times.
The danger that the Oregon Trunk
may become n -II ill line at any time
lends inducement to the Harrimun
people to forestall the only live oppo
sition project that openly plans to
invade Oregon from the north, east or
west.
The party of engineers referred to In
the above story ca'rno out from Shan
iko last Sunday, going on into Central
Oregon by way of Haycreek and
l'rhievilteand hurried on to Burns in
the southeastern part of the state
The engineers are said to have been
accompanied by General Manager
O'Brien, Attorney W. W. Cotton and
oilier Harriman officials, and the an
nouncement was made that from
Burns the party would go to Hunting
ton on the O. R, & N. From this fact,
and from tbe further fact that the
Oregon Trunk Line has not been sur
veyed farther south than Madras, from
which point on south it would
have the choice of half a dozen routes,
It is rattier to be inferred that this
party has somo other object in view
than that of obstructing progress on
the Oregon Trunk Line.
HERDERS AND INDIANS MIX
Have A Lively Fracas With Booze
and Guns at Rosland
A serious shooting scrape occurred
at Rosland in the southern part of thh
county last week between three
herders in cuarge of the Yancey sheep
and tjireo Indians from the Warm-
springs reservation. The stories of
tiie affray as toid by tho Indians and
by the other parties to the fracae differ
very widely. each claiming the other'
to have been to iilame. According to
tho story told by the Indians, they
went trt"lheslieep camp on a peaceful
mission and were attacked by the
sheepmen, when the general mix-up
occurred. The herder?, however, suy
that the Indiaus were filled with fire
water and had heen giving them
trouhle all day, riding through the
bands of sheep, discharging their pis
tols and shouting, in an effort to sepa
rate the bauds. They w.ere warned to
desist but were too full of whiskey tr
heed the warning, and the. fight was
finally precipitated. One of tho In
dians received a bad bullet wound
through ills thouldcr, another bus a
bad buulp wound from a I. low with a
ritle, and the third Indian Is badly
.beaten up. Tlio herders escaped with
out any injuries. Colbert Hoto is tiie
name of tho Indian who was shot
through the shoulder, and Wdllie
Miller was the recipient of tlio pleas
ant little attentions from the herder
which left him with a bad scalp
wound. Tho name of the other Indian
Is unknown.
Sheriff UI kins left for tho soeno of
the shooting immediately upon re-'
celpt of the uewt, and the herders and
wounded Indians were brought to
I'rinevllle for examination by the dis
trict attorney.
Colbeit Hote, the Indian who was
shot has the reputation of being a bad
man, and It wad lie who several veurs
ago killed an, Indian policeman on the
reservation, for which ho served time.
In tlio IrueuH at KuHlund lie was shot
by Fred Snoderly.
ADAMS-LAMB WEDDINC
Mr. D. W. Adams mid Mrs. Loiin M
Lamb, oih of this place, wore married
at Tlio Dulles on Wednesday of last

tlio happy event was not mado horo
until tlioir return on Sunday evening.
Mrs. Lamb has heen visitini; friends in
Spokane- for several weeks, and upon
her return was mot at Tlio Dulles by
Mr., AduniH, whore a quiet ceremony
was performed in the, presence of a few
friends, making them man and wife.

Railroad Extension Into
' i V
Poschutes Courttry
It is reported that tho Mt. Ilood
electric line is negotiating for the
power silo at Cline Falls, ou the Des
chutes which, lends an air of sub-'
stantiallty to the recen t rumors of the
extension of that road across Centra
Oregon, to connect with the Mbffat
road at gait Lake in the formation of d
new transcontinental line with Port
land as tbe Pacific Coast terminus.
LaBt week two representatives of tho
electric road passed through Madras
from Cline Falls, where they had been
looking over the property ivith 1$. U.
Hurlburt, one of the owners of the
power site, and it is rumored that a,
deal for the property has practically
been closed. This rumor has not beet ,
confirmed by either the purchasers or.
the owners of the property, although
it is definitely known that negotia;
tions are under way.
Should it be true that the Mt. Hood
road lias purchased the Cline Fall
property, It confirms absolutely tho,
recent rumors of tbe extension of the.
Mt. Hood road up the Desohutes Into
Central Oregon. No other motlyq
than that of utilizing the falls for the.
generation of electrical power wquld
have prompted the purchase, and the.
power to be developed at Cline Fall
would unquestionably be for the oper
ation of the line up tbe Deschutes, aq
tbeMt. Hood line can develop ample
power nearer at band than Cline
Falls for tbe operation of its enter
prises, should tbe extensive line up
the Deschutes and through Centra ,
Oregon not be contemplated. This
fact will make, tbe announcement of
the purchase of tbe Cline Falls prop
erty by the Mt. Hood company practi
cally an announcement of their plans.
The Government measurement
shows a flow of 3800 cubic feet of
water per secoud at the falls, which
drop a sheer 30 feet in the canyon of
the Deschutes, and it is estimated that
50,000 horse power cau be developed
at tbe falls.
FISHER HAS PROMISING COLT
Fred Fisher returned the last of tho
week from The Dalles, where ho has
been attending the fair and carnival
held at that place, and which ho saya
was a great success from every stand
poiut. The exhibits in the pavilHon
were good, the attendance was large
and the racinc was first-class. Mr.
Fisher took to The Dalles with him
his three-year-old colt. Babv Itov.
with which lie took second money iti
ono Harness event, uaoy Kov was
ulso exhibitejl in tho stock bhow, and
was awarded the first prize for sinjjrle
r.adsters. Mr. Fisher Is pardonably
proud of the fact that hitt colt took tho
lilue ribbon in his class In tlio stneh
exhibit, and lie in also very much
pleased witn the colt's performance in
the harness events." '
FAILED TO FIND ELK
Superintendent C. C. Covey nnd W.
LIT- Bishop of tjio Warmsprings Agency
were in town last Friday. The former
hud just returned from an expedition
over to the headwaters of the Claoka-
mas after elk, the expedition, how
ever, faiiiug in its purposeas they did
not get any big gumo ut all. From
September 15 to the 15th of this
month was an open season for elk, the
first tltno In Ave years that it was
hwful to kill this species of game, and
only one oik by each hunter could
lawfully be killed tills year. Mr.
Covey had two Indian guides with
liiui, and had been promised sight of
eik, but although thoy spent several
days looking for them, thoy did not
find the herd.
STAGE DRIYER WAS LOST
Paesongors who loft Shaniko on Tues
day evening's Prinovillo stage, relate an
aggravating oxporiehco. Tho driver
was a new man, unfamiliar with the
roads, and instead of keeping tho Prino
villo roud took the ono leading tQwmd
Hakeoven. In spito of tho protests of
passengers wjio were familiar with tint
route, tlio driver carried thoni out on
tho wrong road thirteen miles before ho
wuh finally convinced of his 1 mistako.
Then ho drovo back to within about
1 four miles of Shuiiiko and took tho
right road, and the stage with Uh wcai
passougers reached Heisler station a
